I’m sad to say that my family’s mini vacation to Minnesota ended yesterday. Here is a quick snapshot of what went down:
- We started by going to the Minnesota State Fair, where we ate food and saw a display of handmade clothes from the creative arts competition.
- Next, we went to a picturesque vineyard where we ate more food and drank wine.
- After the vineyard we ate at a restaurant (just call me Tubby) where it needed to hire its own security guards, called Gasthof Zur Gemutlichkeit…and I ordered a Sex On the Beach.
- Finally, I boarded the Megabus to return home, where my bus driver and a Somali woman fought over open crates of food.
So now I’m back home, bloated as usual. But I had a great time, and I hope to go back soon. And since this was one of my favorite family vacations, this week’s theme will be jeans (jeans, genes, get it? hahaha…ah, I give up).
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a third denim jeans item to round out this list. Either my motion sickness from the MegaBus is still lingering and making me feel lazy, or there really is not much out there in the way of cute, affordable denim.
Sheer clothing – the ultimate in being honest about your body image.
I honestly don’t think people would even notice the sheer panels on this skirt until they really look at it, because I didn’t even notice it at first. Which is a good thing, because you don’t always want your clothing to be obvious. Sometimes, subtlety is better.
Simple, pretty and unique.
This isn’t a subtle blouse, but I love it anyways – especially that shade of blue. Anyone who wears this needs perfect posture.
Life is complicated, so why make things more difficult? So in the spirit of simplicity, I have a few items to show you that are pretty yet simple – not too many details and froufrou. Enjoy!
This dress is sooooo pretty that it could even be worn as a wedding dress for a modern bride.
I’m focusing on the skirt here, which can be worn throughout the year.
Blouses like this Pleated Sleeves Top can be worn to pretty much any event, and (again) can be worn in different seasons all throughout the year.
Oh Mad Men. If I ever work in an office, I really hope it doesn’t resemble this boring TV show with its snoozefest plots and characters without dialogue. The characters do a lot of staring and smoking: staring out of windows while smoking, staring at other characters while smoking, staring at the at-home viewer who has now become paranoid by all this staring and as a result has taken up smoking. If one day I am so lucky as to work in an office, here are my fave three pieces that I would wear to work.
This dress is so cute and perfect for the office and for dinner afterwards.
